The trail is a little skinny most of the distance but not a big deal. This is a beautiful trail the whole way. Not sure how a past review of this thought trail was boring and all they saw was the creek. Look around as you hike, it's great. Saw three or four hawks in the first mile too.
We had a nice warm day today and was able to get up nearly 5 miles on mountain bikes. The first 3-4 miles are not too steep. Once you cross the creek the trail gets very steep. We had to walk the bikes up for nearly a mile. In that mile the trail climbs up about 700 ft. The views are pretty great. It took us about 2 hours to get up 5 miles, and about an hour to get down.
We enjoyed this trail. We took our 3 young boys ages 3-8 and were able to go up about 2.5 miles without any problems. The trail is pretty easy. The scenery is good and the trail feels pretty secluded. The trail follows the creek most of the way, however the trail was usually about 100 yards or more away from the creek on the small section we hiked. We didn't see any wildlife.
We didn't see many other people on the trail today but we did see some mountain bikers. I'll be coming back with my bike later this summer.
Teppee Creek trail is a perfect trail to get your legs under you when you 1st arrive in the Yellowstone area. With an elevation of 4 to 5 hundred feet, it can be a in and back or if you have a shuttle you can link with Daily Creek trail or Buffalo Horn trail to double the distance and enhance the views. Water parallels the creek the 1st 2 miles. Wild flowers, moderate views of valleys and mountains with a chance to exercise your dogs are pluses. Also a moderate backcountry ski trail Dec through March.
Great trail. We only went about half way before we were chased out by lightning and rain. The trail is easy to see and not too steep. My kids loved it. We stopped and fished along the way and tried to outsmart some brook trout. Lots of fun and scenery.
